Is X-Wire dead?

    Is the x-wire the ONLY solution for wireless? Why is there no equal? You can't even get an x-wire. Even if you could, you'r screwed for repairs.

    This totally makes me mental.

    If you want full range then I think Xwire is your only choice. Also the "newer" Xwires are only 16 bit, which isn't that great. The older were either 20 or 24.

    It was 24 bit.
    It slays me that it's in production anymore. Which makes my search for one all the more in vain. Guess I'll have to settle for a Shure UHF...grumble grumble...

    I think Senheiser (sp?) "Bought them out." Nothing hurts the Wireless market like a clear cut leader. :rolleyes: Remember in the Simpsons when Bill Gates buy's out Homer? Yeah. I'm thinkin that's what happened. Course, then I have to wonder why they don't use the X-wire tech themselves...:confused:

    I wanna X-Wire!
